The HakureiCon Project

Mensaje por NightLunya » Jue Mar 22, 2018 12:40 am

(spanish version below)

What is the HakureiCon Project?

As its name implies, "Hakurei" is all that is related to Touhou Project, while "Con" is the abbreviation of the word "convention". The HakureiCon project is divided into 2 parts:

The HakureiCon Festival aims to be the first European convention entirely dedicated to Touhou Project. The goal is to provide fans with a place where they can share, meet, and organize activities, just like the courins TouhouCon in America and the Reitaisai in Japan, all in a multi-cultural and multilingual setting, and invite communities, artists, and guests from all over the world (even though we primarily target the European community)
The HakureiCon Shop meanwhile is an online store dedicated to Touhou Project and which aims a primarily social purpose. The goal here is twofold: one is to provide fans with a quick, easy way to buy Touhou Project goodies at a safe and passionate store, and to offer the opportunity for any artist (whether known or not) to promote and sell his products derived from Touhou Project on our platform.

The online store aims to finance the Festival and therefore the majority of its profits will be for this project. The project, meanwhile, is created by Touhou-Online, the biggest French community of Touhou Project, and a non-profit organization.

Why did not I hear about it ?!

Initiated almost 2 years ago, the project today has the form of the e-commerce site currently in the beta phase. The Festival needs the income that will be generated by the online store, but we can already tell you that the first edition will certainly take place in Belgium. We had talked about it in a few forums (including here) to get a first opinion, but then we focused on the realization of the project.
Moreover, it is quite possible to follow the news of the project on the Facebook page. There is also a Discord server where the volunteers contribute to the project. It is possible to come as an observer* by asking him nicely 😊.

You can also join the Discord server to observe the project. and here is the Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/hakureiconshop/
I'll suggest you to go to "About us" on this page to learn a bit more about it
However this page is just a part of the whole project.

(observer: a person who can attend our work, our meetings, without participating)

I'm really interested to join the project, how may I contribute?

Indeed ! HakureiCon needs a variety of people to ensure, now and in the future, its various functions. The form to become one is here. Note that the work within the HakureiCon is done in English, due to the international nature of the project (and the different origins of its contributors).
The HakureiCon also recruits artists making all kinds of creations in order to sell them on the Shop, to fulfill the convention, but also to help the implementation of the project as a whole.

If you do not want to become a volunteer for lack of time/skills, it is still quite possible to support the project by talking to you about it or making donations that will be used for the Festival.
If you prefer to highlight your skills, just fill out the form to join the team. Your help will be greatly appreciated in any case.

If you want to join our volunteers' crew, you can apply there by filling the form
(http://goo.gl/forms/ShMeS31Pkj),
and if you are an artist and wish to sell your works through HakureiCon Shop:
(https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1TjpxHO ... mbVCbLGuWA).

Donation is under consideration, we are searching more informations about crowdfunding's authorization.

We will tell you more exactly how the project will evolve on our social networks and then on our website once it will be ready.

¿Qué es el Proyecto HakureiCon?
Como su nombre lo indica, "Hakurei" es todo lo relacionado con Touhou Project, mientras que "Con" es la abreviatura de la palabra "Convención". El proyecto HakureiCon está dividido en 2 partes:

El Festival HakureiCon pretende ser la primera convención europea dedicada por completo a Touhou Project. El objetivo es brindarles a los fanáticos un lugar donde puedan compartir, conocer y organizar actividades, al igual que los courins TouhouCon en América y Reitaisai en Japón, todo en un entorno multicultural y de multilenguaje, e invitar a comunidades, artistas y invitados de todo el mundo (aunque principalmente nos dirigimos a la comunidad europea

Mientras tanto, HakureiCon Shop es una tienda en línea dedicada a Touhou Project y que tiene como objetivo primordialmente social. El objetivo aquí es doble: uno es brindarles a los fanáticos una forma rápida y fácil de comprar productos de Touhou Project en una tienda segura y apasionada, y ofrecer la oportunidad para que cualquier artista (conocido o no) promocione y venda sus productos derivados de Touhou Project en nuestra plataforma.

La tienda en línea tiene como objetivo financiar el Festival y, por lo tanto, la mayoría de sus ganancias será para este proyecto. El proyecto, mientras tanto, es creado por Touhou-Online, la mayor comunidad francesa de Touhou Project, y una organización sin fines de lucro.

¿Por qué no me enteré?!

Iniciado hace casi 2 años, el proyecto de hoy tiene la forma del sitio de comercio electrónico actualmente en la fase beta. El Festival necesita los ingresos que generará la tienda en línea, pero ya podemos decir que la primera edición ciertamente tendrá lugar en Bélgica. Habíamos hablado de ello en algunos foros (incluso aquí) para obtener una primera opinión, pero luego nos enfocamos en la realización del proyecto.
Además, es bastante posible seguir las noticias del proyecto en la página de Facebook. También hay un servidor de Discord donde los voluntarios contribuyen al proyecto. Es posible venir como un observador* preguntándole amablemente 😊.

También puedes unirte al servidor de Discord para observar el proyecto. y aquí está la página de Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/hakureiconshop/
Le sugiero que vaya a "Sobre nosotros" en esta página para obtener más información al respecto.
Sin embargo, esta página es solo una parte de todo el proyecto.

(Observador: una persona que puede asistir a nuestro trabajo, nuestras reuniones, sin participar)

Acerca de la contribución ... (si alguien quiere unirse al proyecto HakureiCon):

El proyecto HC necesita una buena variedad de personas para garantizar, ahora y en el futuro, sus diversas funciones. El formulario para unirse está aquí. Cabe destacar que el trabajo dentro del HakureiCon se realiza en inglés, debido a la naturaleza internacional del proyecto (y los diferentes orígenes de sus colaboradores).

El HakureiCon también recluta artistas que realizan todo tipo de creaciones para venderlas en la Tienda; para cumplir con la convención en sí a la vez que se ayuda a la implementación del proyecto como un conjunto.

.- Si no desea convertirse en voluntario por falta de tiempo/habilidades, aún es posible apoyar el proyecto hablando con usted sobre el o haciendo donaciones que se utilizarán posteriormente para el Festival.
.-Si prefiere destacar sus habilidades, solo complete el formulario para unirse al equipo. Su ayuda será muy apreciada en cualquier caso.

Aquí está el enlace para la solicitud del voluntario para la parte de la Tienda, que es la primera parte del proyecto completo: http://goo.gl/forms/ShMeS31Pkj)

Y si usted es un artista y desea vender sus obras a través de HakureiCon Shop : (https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1TjpxHO ... mbVCbLGuWA)

La donación está bajo consideración, estamos buscando más información sobre la autorización de crowdfunding.

¿Avance?

Revisa la parte inglesa

Well, now that is a piece of initiative! I will help you advertising this in Facebook and telling my friends.

Imagen I wish you a lot of luck on this!

Btw, what do you think about Patreon? I have heard is a good way to collect funds (but never tried it for myself).

La primera palabra que se me ocurrió fue sueño, mientras dormía.
Se lleva con cuidado la oscuridad de mi corazón.
La segunda palabra fue viento, al que le pido me muestre el camino.
Extiendo mis alas para alcanzar a Dios.
Como si contaran las penas del pasado
las manzanas doradas caen una tras otra.

This is truly amazing. A place for artists and content creators to share their work, and a place for every fan looking to get Touhou merchandise~
In my case, most big companies such as Good Smile or Banpresto often release figures; But they are always of the same characters (cirno, youmu, remilia, etc), i've been looking to get figures or other products of more rare characters like Seiga~ And, if big companies are not going to release stuff of those characters, then this might be my best bet.

And, not only is this a good project "e-commerce wise", but the fact that the funds are being used for a big convention is nice. It's really hard for most of us to get to Europe, but i really hope this goes well and i'm willing to support it.

I've already informed a friend who might be interested in sharing his work, will try to share the word~

I did, indeed. I also thought of Tipeee and more local crowdfunding sites for NPO. But I also think about making my own crowdfunding system on the website itself (because I can) but I guess the visitors will prefer to make in on Patreon or Tipeee for "guarantee"

I'll honestly say that it's most probably that I can't get the new product in release (like if the Reisen Nendoroid comes out, I won't get it on the shop before a certain time OR it would be really too expensive).
But I also admit that I'll focus more on the artists who makes garage kits to provide unique and exclusive figures you won't find on more common shops.

And thanks for the help.

___________

By the way, I have some news. We were working on design improvement and bugs, so we switched theme to add new functionnalities. And we have a new draft of the shop.

I just hope some volunteers will help us to finish and maintain the shop. The website is now in a new BETA stage and we will need beta testers soon.

No problem, Niyu. Any help is appreciated.

And by the way, I have some news.

Our website is slowly progressing and we are glad to say that our to-do list is slowly reaching the end :)
But...
We are actively looking at more volunteers to speed up the project, especially in encoding (products), proofreading, management and public relations/community manager.
But, most importantly, before releasing something, we need to test it. So we are now looking at beta-testers to use, check and note everything on our website.
It would also be a good opportunity to have a first external notice of the site and to be able to make possible changes to the site before its launch. And finally, of course, we are open to any suggestion and idea.

So if you want to beta-test or become a volunteer, it's here: https://tiny.cc/hcsstaff

We also plan the public release of the eShop for this summer, if everything goes right.
